High School: Elder High School

Career Goal: I would like to become a 3D animator.

About:  I am majoring in Media Arts and Science, with a specialization in 3D Graphics and Animation. I’m originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, and am a sophomore at IUPUI.

What originally drew me to IUPUI was the wonderful and innovative Media Arts and Science program we have, and the number of amazing resources and facilities on campus. But what really separated IUPUI from other colleges was the amazing community in Luddy Indianapolis. The relationship between the faculty and the students, and the sense of unity among the students, was what really made me choose to come to IUPUI.

As a student, I’m currently involved at IUPUI as a tutor, and am involved in my residence hall’s student government. I also plan on joining the IUPUI JagBand, a pep band that attends IUPUI athletic events. I also am involved with the first-ever Luddy Indianapolis podcast, “Coffee and Computers” which you can check out on Spotify or other major streaming platforms!
